When "Sex And The City" infamously ended after just six years, diehard fans of the cult show were left wanting more. And though more came in the form of two films (along with rumors of a third movie), the show's creator Michael Patrick King recently hinted that a revival of the show itself might be possible, as well.
In an interview with E! News, King addressed the possible return of the show, along with fielding questions about his other, more recent series "The Comeback."
"With the new streaming service, all bets are off," King said. "There's a chance, but I have no idea what the streaming world will be like. Look, television's like the Wild West now. People are shooting guns off like, 'Pop! Pop! Pop! I'm on the Planter's Peanut channel!' It's so crazy how many different ways you can play this game. And as far as 'Sex and the City' goes, the mere fact that it is still so alive, and not just on the gym TV's, not just on the Precor, but that people are still wondering about these girls, you never know. It could come back at some point. All bets are off."
Of course, the way we watch television has been changing rapidly due to streaming services like Netflix, and HBO's recently launched, similar model for HBO Go -- which is now available as a stand-alone service. Would a "SATC" reinvention come courtesy of streaming?
King said he's interested in the idea, given the success of shows like "Orange Is The New Black" using that medium.
"If the arcs are full and you feel like you went somewhere," King says, "then it can really work. I mean, you watch a whole season of 'Orange is the New Black,' and you're getting something. I think people will stop streaming or being interesting in it if it's just six episodes that mean nothing. If they actually have a solid ‘what's happening next' push, and if there's an arc within them, I think people do get really hooked on them. So it's an exciting time to be in television, because no one really knows where this is all going to land. It's great for the viewers, I think."
Okay, so no definitive yes or no, but there's definitely a chance... for now, at least we have "The Carrie Diaries." Though The CW canceled the show after two season earlier this year, I'll probably still be binge-watching it all winter.
